Fools

We’re all fools here.
Fools for gold,
Fools for what gets us to gold,
Fools for what gold buys.

We’re all fools here.
Fools for passion,
Fools for the passion of work,
Fools for the passion of flesh.

We’re all fools here.
Fools for attraction,
Fools for the attraction of adventure,
Fools for the attraction of beauty.

We’re all fools here.
Fools for love,
Fools for the love we get,
Fools for the love we lose.

We’re all fools here.
Better a truly alive fool
Than a merely breathing corpse,
Than a bag of regrets.

Happy All Fools’ Day!
